3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of roasted malts and bitter chocolate. Very dark brown beer with red tones. Head is beige and creamy, not long lasting. Flavour is sweet and filled with bitter chocolate. Finish is dry, with good cleansing bitterness. Soft on the palate, a bit watery body. Even though it is bottom-fermented, it tastes more like a decent porter than a schwartzbier
